Within Bug 1670244 we are starting to perform IPC based Principal vetting when receiving a Principal from the Content Process. In turn, this hardening effort will effectively block content to load about:mozilla as requested by this line:
SpecialPowers.wrap(iwin).location.href = "about:mozilla";

Ultimately opening up the question if that test is still relevant. For now we will explicitly opt-out of perform IPC based principal vetting for the test, but we should re-evaluate how useful that test in it's current form is. Options are (a) re-writing, (b) removing.

Severity: -- → N/A
Flags: needinfo?(tomica)
Priority: -- → P3
Blocks: 1873342

With the InstallTrigger implementation being disabled everywhere (bug 1772901), is this test still useful?

We should get a peer to review, but I think yes, we can delete the test.
